It’s THAT time of year again! When everything changes. Summer fades to fall, dry air cuts through the city’s humidity, and most importantly your skin requires a lot more TLC. Don’t fret, we’ve got you covered, with a few tips and some of our favorite products to transition your skin from summer to fall without losing that glow.

STEP ONE: The Milky Way

Swap out that gel or foam cleanser and opt in for something cream based. A great milk cleanser will leave your skin feeling fresh, soft, and most importantly, hydrated. We have picked out a few of our personal go-to cleansers:

Glossier’s Milky Jelly Face Wash is unreal. Made with a blend of five skin conditioners, Glossier ensures your face is left feeling healthy and soft, not to mention its gentle, almost magical cleansing powers. A key ingredient in this comes from the same gentle cleaning agents found in contact lens solution; yes you can toss the eye make-up remover and just scrub away one time!

Fresh Soy Face Cleansing Milk is a light weight, extremely gentle face cleanser for all skin types. This milky cleanser acts as a triple threat: it melts make up, wipes out everyday impurities, and tones. All without stripping the skin of its essential moisture.

STEP TWO: Hydration, Hydration, Hydration!

Hydration is key for any weather and any skin type, though the air is not set to completely dry us out for another few months, these face creams are guaranteed to change your life. They just may become an essential staple in your toiletry kit.

Nivea skin cream is the ultimate moisture for any skin type, this cream can be used as both a day and night cream depending on your skin’s needs. Its thick texture is only there to fool you, this moisturizer is anything but oily and will leave your skin supple and hydrated. Meryl Streep swears by this one!

Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve face cream is truly a blessing in a jar. Its lightweight formula sinks into the skin quickly, finishing with an all over dewy glow. Lotus flower, hibiscus and fig extracts not only smell delicious but together act as a great base underneath that night out face.
STEP THREE: Step away from the exfoliator!
Well not completely. We believe exfoliation should be a part of your skin care routine all year round. However, let’s opt out the harsh exfoliator for something a bit more gentle. Try a few of our favorites.

Sensitive skin? Neutrogena’s Hydro-Boost Exfoliating Cleanser may be your match. Its soft on the skin and leaves you feeling fresh faced!

We love a good triple threat! Boscia’s Exfoliating Peel Gel gently removes the top layer of dead skin, while deep cleansing your pores, lastly, it acts as a firming and brightening treatment. PEEL AWAY!

STEP FOUR: Humidify yourself

Fall gifts us with crisp, yet dry air. Tis’ the season for colds, the flu and other air born viruses. A humidifier can be the solution to all annoying viruses and can benefit both your skin and lips throughout these colder months. That’s right, no need to keep layering on the chap stick and oily hand creams. We recommend the Rowenta Intense Aqua Control Ultrasonic Humidifier
